The Endicott Elks helped CHOW fight hunger last night as they held a spaghetti and meatballs dinner with all proceeds going to CHOW.  The dinner was held from 5-8 PM at the Elks Lodge, 619 North Nanticoke Avenue in Endicott and was available for eat-in or take-out.

Elks Club members teamed up with CHOW volunteers to prepare and serve the meals.  Diners were also requested to bring non-perishable food items to donate to CHOW.

According to CHOW Director Mike Leahey the upcoming summer months will see an increase in the need for food for families.  With school set to let out for the summer many children miss the well-balanced and nutritious meals served in the cafeteria. CHOW requests items to make meals at home such as pasta, spaghetti sauce and canned fruits and vegetables.  Peanut butter is always needed along with cereal and baby formula.

CHOW accepts contributions and food donations weekdays at the Broome County Council of Churches office, 3 Otseningo Street, Binghamton.
